This wall hanging may have been one of my first design efforts using batiks only. The colors are pleasing and exciting, the free form design was very intuitive as I recall. I also used ribbons and yarns to delineate the outlines of each abstract shape. For added texture, I used some rolled bark that I took from an old necklace. This necklace was a gift from a visit to Russia but I hardly ever used it, so I sacrificed it for my design. I felt like the texture from the bark somehow was reflected in some of the batiks. Perhaps at the time, I didn’t have much else to choose from, so ‘necessity is the Mother of Invention’. How do you like the result?
